African Spiritualism Animism: Otherwise Voodoo



bigmama60Bigmama60 on 08/12/2007

AfricanSpiritualismAnimismOtherwiseVoodoo Photo Born and raised in the Catholic Church, I never felt I was allowed to explore other philosophies or religions. I believed that would be heresy, but after graduation from high school I earned my freedom to explore. Here's a subject which has been of particular interest to me. Perhaps because of my immediate environment, I wanted to how my ancestors worshipped prior to the introduction to Christianity. African Animisms are unique to their specific geographical locations, but some of the same tenets and outer characteristics may be the same.

This faith is a universally shared life force between good spirits: human spirits, spirits of the long dead (referred to as ancestral spirits), nature spirits, and bad spirits. Some would say Animism hinges on idolization. Most African religions firmly believe that people continue to live - I guess that why I'm here, possibly through their spirits, beliefs, customs, folklore, protection and perpetuation.

Animism is not just indigenous to Africa. Many polytheistic religions all over the globe have nature as one of the basic facets to their beliefs and rituals - albeit, it appears some of these claims defy logical thinking. Nevertheless the belief is toward good. Learning about oneself, the past, and others only allows one to understand and respect those who may be different.

I hope the quiz is informative.
